Artfix canvases provide a conservatory grade painting surface that holds color as the artist first painted it. Artfix uses the finest Belgian linen, featuring the longest natural thread for a strong, flawless surface.

For nearly 40 years, the Narozni family have been crafting fine art supports in Provence, where the warm dry climate is idal for slow and stable drying of primed fabrics. By combining time-honored European methods with modern chemistry, Artfix canvases provide a conservator grade painting surface that assures the artists' expression will survive the passage of time. Artfix uses the finest Belgian linen, featuring the longest natural thread (fewer knots) for a strong, flawless surface.

Linen's ph stability is far superior to cotton, whose vulnerability to external and internal acides compromises its permanence. All Artfix canvases are double sized for protection against oil paints, allowing uniform "breathing" which reduces paint film stress. Up to 4 layers of primer are hand applied and sanded---such case prevents peeling, flaking, or cracking. Extra fine portrait linen is an extremely tight weave and flawless glass-like surface, making it the choice for professional portraiture or precise detailing. It contains the most threads per inch of any canvas.

Lead style oil primer provides traditional lead ground qualities without its toxicity. Its unique absorbency allows oil paints to "bite" into the surface, increasing adhesion and depth of color. When glazed, color glow from within.
